François Vuilleumier Fund for Research on Neotropical Bird

The goal of the Neotropical Ornithological Society’s Francois Vuilleumier Fund is to award one or more cash grants per year for thesis studies of Neotropical birds to one or several graduate students from any country in Latin America and the Caribbean. The funds are provided to assist thesis research by students, enrolled in an institution in the Neotropics who have little or no  access to funds within their country or at their institution. Awards will be competitive and are expected to be in the range of $500–$1000. Students from Latin America and the Caribbean enrolled in a graduate degree program (Masters or Ph.D.) at an institution in the Neotropical Region are eligible to apply.

Application Calendar:
Application Deadline: 15 September each year (e-mail receipt)
Announcement of Awards: 15 December each year
